My prayer is that our youth understand what these men sacrificed in order for us to live free.

We so take our freedoms for granted, may God forgive us.

I remember when our churches would remember and recognize our war veterans on special holidays like Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Fourth of July, unfortunately they appear to be just another day as these young individuals become leaders in our society..

We all are able to live our life of freedom because of the sacrifices made by all our service men.

A few years ago, my then 76 year old grandma(she live in Campbellsville,KY) told me and my mom that her brother’s best friend was Frank Sousley. When I asked her who that was, she told me that he was one of the six flag raisers at Iwo Jima. Didnt know if that would be of any help or not.

I don’t know how I’m related to Franklin but I Must be. I look just like this brave man who sacrificed his life for others.

Thanks,

Adam Sousley.

Franklin was my Grandmothers first cousin…making him my third. The family resemblance is so amazing. I feel like I’m looking at pictures of my father and uncle. Wow!

I heard that one of the men in the famous picture of the flag raising was from Kentucky. Read the story of Franklin Sousley and the kind and beautiful letters he wrote to his Mother. He sounded like a wonderful Brave man. So proud.
